Sonesta cares deeply about the health and well-being of our guests and employees. We have developed a rigorous new health and cleanliness program, Stay Safe with Sonesta, for all of our U.S. hotels. Working with Ecolab Inc., a leading provider of cleaning and disinfecting solutions for the hospitality industry, we have designed the Stay Safe with Sonesta program to meet or exceed applicable CDC and/or governmental requirements and guidance related to the current Coronavirus pandemic. The program will continue to evolve as we revise our protocols to follow updated guidance from public health authorities and maintain the most relevant levels of protection for our guests and employees.
Sonesta is the first hotel company to be Sharecare Health Security VERIFIED with Forbes Travel Guide - an important industry designation to receive - across its managed hotel portfolio, demonstrating Sonesta’s commitment to the health and safety of its guests and team members. Sharecare’s comprehensive verification process helps ensure that guests and travel planners can book with confidence knowing the appropriate health safety protocols and procedures are in place at Sonesta hotels. Each of the 250+ hotel’s health and safety protocols and procedures has been verified using Sharecare’s health security platform to confirm a comprehensive set of public health standards are met or exceeded including Sonesta’s own successful Stay Safe with Sonesta health and cleanliness program.
